that little peice of carbide isnt going to bother. as far as the out of balance is concerned you put much more stress on the bearings cutting a peice of wood than the out of balance would cause. I would visibly check the remeining teeth for damage or faulty brazing. depends on the grind. alternating or triple chip. in very hard woods it may want to crowd toward the side of the cut where the lead of the tooth is missing. For the most part it should cut just fine.
